Easter Visitor

Tue, 22nd Apr 2014

Easter lamb lunch we were looking out of the window to some trees just outside our land when we saw two large bright yellow birds. Rushing to find binoculars, we are pretty sure that we've identified them as Golden Orioles, migrating here from Asia. They are big birds, about the size of a small pigeon, but their colour makes them quite unmistakable, and they have a lovely song, something like a thrush. I've never seen them before, but will be keeping my eyes and ears open from now on.
